Family United

Short Story:

        Reading the book, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stand Together!” as a family, my husband asks, “What’s the difference between wisdom and knowledge?” Not really asking, per se, but thinking they are one and the same.  

      “Oh no!” I said, “Wisdom is spiritual and knowledge is technical.”

      To which he said, “Oh well then, you’re the wise guy, Leonardo and I’m the smart ass, Donatello.  

      “Okay, yes!” I said, laughing.

      Our son then wanted to know who he was.  

      I said, “Oh, who do you think you are?”

      He looked down at the book and quickly smiled saying, “I’m Raphael the strong one!”  He kept reading innocently, “…He has big muscles-and an even bigger attitude.”

     My husband and I glanced over at each other, nodding in instant agreement, hiding our chuckles.  

    “Yes son,” I said, “you are very strong, and funny as well, like Michelangelo!”

 

A family unit,

 Of individual strengths and weaknesses,

Learning from each other,

Standing STRONG together,

And sometimes bent over from a good belly laugh.
